Full Mouth Reconstruction

This is rebuilding of all teeth to the original/correct shape.

 

What is a full mouth reconstruction?
There are many reasons that patients lose their teeth, including gum disease, decay, injury, accident and as part of the natural aging process. Whatever the reason, losing one or more teeth can be a source of embarrassment that makes you not want to smile, and can also cause problems with eating, the health of any remaining teeth and even with speaking.

When you have many broken, worn and/or multiple missing teeth, then a full mouth reconstruction may be required. At Beautiful Smile, our friendly family dentists use a range of treatments to restore and replace damaged and missing teeth. This could involve porcelain dental crowns, porcelain veneers, inlays, onlays, white (tooth-coloured) fillings, bridges and dental implants, as well as treatments including root canal therapy, soft tissue grafting, bone grafting and All on 4 dentures.

Our dentist in Balwyn has the experience and expertise to bring together the various advanced dental disciplines required to create full mouth reconstructions that not only look great but they function correctly, are healthy and will last for many years to come.

If your bite is not ideal because of missing or broken down teeth at the back of your mouth, all of the load of your bite will be taken by your front teeth. Over time this can cause the front teeth to chip & break and lead to an unsightly appearance & in some cases, pain in your jaw joints.

Missing teeth at the back of the mouth can be restored with dental bridges or implants and broken down teeth can be restored with crowns or onlays to open up the bite and allow for better function. This will in turn relieve the pressure from the front of the mouth and allow for restorations such as ceramic crowns and porcelain veneers to be placed and rejuvenate the appearance of your smile. Uneven gum margins can also be corrected if required using minimally invasive laser surgery to ensure we get an impeccable final result.

Examination
A thorough examination of the teeth, gums, supporting bone, muscles and jaw joint/ TMJ is essential. The latest technology helps us identify and explain what dentistry is required in your full mouth reconstruction and why. Digital photography, Joint Vibration Analysis (JVA) and TekScan bite analysis are often crucial to plan and communicate your treatment needs.

Computer Aided Smile Design
It’s vital that your full mouth reconstruction not only functions perfectly but looks great. Our extensive experience in cosmetic dentistry allows us to perfectly combine form and function. The latest in Computer Aided Smile Design technology allows us to discuss and show you the aesthetic outcome before we touch a tooth!

3D Preview
Detailed impressions and bite records allow us to transform the imaging picture into a 3D model. Not just on the computer but a model you can pick up and examine. You can check the aesthetics from every angle, and we can check the function. This is an essential step in the planning of predictable full mouth reconstructions.

Temporaries
After teeth are prepared for your full mouth reconstruction temporaries are placed that replicate the 3D model exactly. You can trial the proposed full mouth reconstruction in your own mouth, before anything is finalised. These temporaries can be fine tuned to your precise aesthetic and functional requirements and any changes can be duplicated in the finished restorations.

Fitting your full mouth reconstruction
Our master ceramist duplicates the smile design and function (from the temporaries and 3D model) in the final restorations and adds the fine colour, surface anatomy and texture to bring your new full mouth reconstruction to life!

Full mouth reconstruction can really change your life if you have only a few teeth or no teeth at all. Our expertise in dental implants with complete, fixed bridges in Balwyn means you can regain your smile and look years younger. Ideal for restoring lost volume to your face and strengthening your jawbone in the longer term, full mouth reconstruction could be your perfect solution.
